Chapter 156 I will not keep you here since you have made an appointment with a friend
"Thank you!" When he was about to return to the company, Shen Yan suddenly said.
Xia Yu was first stunned. It was too formal. Very soon, she smiled and said, "I accept your gratitude."
The two of them then burst into laughter.
"Old Madame didn't make things difficult for you, did she?" Shen Yan was still a little worried and could not resist asking.
"No, she's nice to me." Xia Yu grinned, "It's just that I might be a little busier in the future. She hopes that I can participate in the project of the Development Zone."
Shen Yan was startled for a moment but quickly recovered to normal: "All right. When we return to the company, you can make a plan with Liu Sijie."
Old Madame was indeed a leader, whom Shen Yan admired very much. Now, he was entirely at ease for this project was already decided. The next thing to do was to discuss with the government about how to develop it. This project required Yang Weiye's help.
"Alright, I think he's already back. I'll discuss with him later." The project will be Shen Yan's big show so that nothing could go wrong.
"I have something to do. I won't go in." Shen Yan stopped the car in front of the entrance of the company.
Xia Yu got off and walked towards the entrance.
Seeing that Xia Yu was back, the employees naturally had a round of discussions. They all wanted to ask about it, but none of them have the guts to do so.
"Xia Yu, why did you let the Old Madame call the magazine?" Liu Sijie was standing in the office area. The moment Xia Yu appeared, he pulled her into the office.
Xia Yu hadn't worked with Shen Yan for a long time, but she understood that Jiang Yayan was a forbidden zone in the Shen Family. Although Xia Yu had got herself involved in the matter and defused Shen Yan's crisis, Shen Yan and she might lose more than they gained.
"This chain of events were all tricks of Young Master Mo. If we didn't deal with the situation with radical measures, Old Madame would not be angry. They started it anyway. I was speaking the truth. " It would be a lie if she said she was not afraid, but at least they were all okay.
"Is Old Madame not clear about this in her heart? above all, she still doesn't trust Young Master Yan. " Liu Sijie sighed, feeling sorry for Shen Yan. How terrifying a man's prejudice could be!
"If she doesn't trust him, what we need to do is to earn her trust. Young Master Yan has some matters to attend to. He asked us to think of a plan first." After all, Old Madame trained Shen Mo herself, and it meant denying herself to use Shen Yan. It is natural for her to feel uneasy.
Could Xia Yu participate in the project? When Liu Sijie heard the word "we", his eyebrows jumped up. Then, he laughed, "Looks like I have to congratulate you!"
Yang Weiye was not surprised that Shen Yan returned after leaving. He immediately stood up: "You came for the land, didn't you? Let's go. I'll take you to someone."
"I've already made a reservation in Ruyi Restaurant!" Shen Yan said with a smile.
"Young Master Yan, look at this land. In two years at most, the value of it will greatly improve." Zhou Kai said as he sat opposite to Shen Yan with a set of confidential business documents in his hands.
"Who is competing against us now?" Shen Yan squinted his eyes. He had been eyeing this piece of land for a long time, and he would not allow anyone to snatch it away from him.
But the land was like a delicious meal that everyone wanted. Shen Yan knew it would not be easy to get it.
When signing the agreement with the municipal government, he asked about the land. From his tone, it seemed that it was not in the hands of the government but a merchant surnamed 'Lin' and he asked for a high price.
"The Zeng's Group. It's said that Zeng Ziqiang has been visiting the Lin's Family frequently these days." Zhou Kai smiled. If the Zeng's started to compete with the Shen's, no wonder the owner would raise the price.
"The price they offered wasn't low. Last time he talked to me at the bar, and he asked for 800 million." Shen Yan said indifferently.
"Isn't his appetite too big? A conservative estimate is 300 million at most." Zhou Kai's eyes lit up as he smiled.
"That's right. So, I'm hesitating. Uncle Zhou, release the news that I'm determined to buy this land. Whoever tries to take it from me will die." A hint of ruthlessness suddenly flashed across Shen Yan's eyes. If Zeng Ziqiang wanted to mess with him, he would suffer a crushing defeat.
"Okay." Zhou Kai picked up his pen and drew a circle on the document, "Young Master Yan, are there only three of us here?" Zhou Kai closed the file with an ambiguous smile on his face.
"Otherwise?" Shen Yan asked with a smile.
"Won't you call your girlfriend over?" Zhou Kai had heard that Young Master Yan's girlfriend helped him a lot in getting the development zone's project in one go.
"My girlfriend? When did I get a girlfriend? " The corner of Shen Yan's mouth curled into an unruly smile. He was single.
However, when Zhou Kai mentioned the word girlfriend, Xia Yu's bright smile suddenly emerged in his mind.
"Brat, don't talk nonsense with me. Do you think I don't know about the matter between you and Xia Yu?" Zhou Kai rolled his eyes and said with a smile.
"I'm not in that relationship with her." Shen Yan emphasized his words with a serious tone.
"It's not good to abstain from sex for too long." Zhou Kai said with a wry smile. Although Zhou Kai was much older than Shen Yan and Shen Yan called him uncle, he never acted like s senior.
Shen Yan knew his temper, and he always spoke to him casually. He gave him a disdainful glance and said: "It's better than overdoing it."
Zhou Kai only smiled and did not explain.
"Chief Yang, Uncle Zhou, Shen Yan, you are all here." Zeng Mina's smile was like a flower. Nobody knew when she had walked over.
Zhou Kai's eyes immediately followed Zeng Mina's body, only to see that she was wearing a black dress and her face which did not have any makeup on was extremely beautiful.
"What a superstar! How beautiful you are!" Zhou Kai praised her sincerely.
"Thank you." Zeng Mina walked over to sit beside Shen Yan.
"Mina, you're here." Yang Weiye smiled and asked. After all, he was an elder, and he could not ignore Zeng Mina as Shen Yan did.
Why did Shen Yan act like this? Even if Zeng Mina had chosen Shen Mo, they could still be friends, yet he did not even greet her.
"I had an appointment with a friend here. I saw you, so I came over to say hello." Zeng Mina replied with a sweet smile.
"If you have an appointment, why are you still here?" Shen Yan asked coldly.
"Shen Yan, are you driving me away?" Zeng Mina was so sad that tears were about to fall from her eyes. How could he speak to her like that?
"Didn't you say you had an appointment with a friend? Why did you think I'm driving you away?" Shen Yan didn't even bat an eyelid.
No matter how well cultivated Zeng Mina was, she could not stand his indifference, so she stood up and walked out.
"Little Yan, even though Mina is sometimes a little headstrong, you have to give your Eldest Brother some face." On the surface, Bai Hong revealed the thing of Jiang Yayan, but Yang Weiye didn't have to guess who was the mastermind behind it.
However, what was the point of saying it? As the elder, of course, Yang Weiye could not intensify their conflicts.
"Second Uncle, didn't I give face to the Eldest Brother? It's true that she said she had an appointment with a friend. Should I get her back? " Shen Yan's temper got under his skin.
"Young Master Yan's words are reasonable. Allow me to drink a toast with both of you." What was Zhou Kai thinking? Just let the young people take care of their matters. It was best to let nature take its course.
Yang Weiye could only smile and raise his wine cup.
After the meal, Zhou Kai was already slightly drunk. He called a driver and left first.
While Yang Weiye was waiting for his driver, he felt that it was necessary to talk with Shen Yan: "Little Yan, I am the President of the company and your elder. If your father is still alive, I don't need to say this. Even if Mina was wrong, she is still your sister-in-law. How can you treat her like this? "
"Second Uncle, you misunderstood me. I have never blamed her for anything. By doing this, I just wanted to send a message to her father. Since he intends to marry his daughter to the Shen Family, then some things shouldn't be done so mercilessly. Although we are all in a business relationship, there must be a bottom line. Don't you think so? " Shen Yan never wanted to argue with Zeng Mina, but the Lin Family's land didn’t adjoin the Zeng Family’s. Why was Zeng Ziqiang fighting for it?
"Yes, Zeng Ziqiang was going too far, but Little Yan, you know, my business ability is far inferior to your father's and your family business is not as strong as it used to be. We can't make them angry." Yang Weiye sighed. The strength of Zeng's company had improved a lot. They had the confidence to challenge the Shen Family.
"Second Uncle, please do not say that. Everyone knew what you have done for Shen's family business, and we appreciate it. I know that I cannot represent others, but in my heart, I will always be grateful for you." What Shen Yan said was not a polite formula. If it were not for Yang Weiye, Shen's would have gone bankrupt long ago.
Although he was a little greedy for power, everyone had their weakness. Nobody could be a perfect person. Shen Yan knew that very well.
"Little Yan, I'm so touched to hear you say that." The corners of Yang Weiye's eyes were a little wet. Over the years as President of the company, he had often heard people say that he wanted to dominate the company. Whether what Shen Yan said was true or not, Shen Mo would never say something like that.
"Second Uncle, you have worked hard for the Shen's for half your life. I believe that you don't want to see the company go under more than anyone else." Shen Yan looked at Yang Weiye with a pleading look. This was the difference between Yang Weiye and Zeng Ziqiang, so he hoped to win over Yang Weiye for cooperation.
These words touched Yang Weiye deeply. Ever since the father and sons of the Shen family died in the air crash, he was ordered to accept the post of President. Only he knew how much effort he had put into this company.
Now the Shen Family wanted to dismiss him. How could he accept it? Yang Weiye said, "Little Yan, you are right. I do not wish to see the Shen's go under, but my abilities are limited."
"Second Uncle, I won't beat around the bush. The Shen's does not belong to the Shen Family, but the tens of thousands of employees. So, I want to fight for this position of President, and I'm doing this partly for the ancestors, but more importantly, I want to prove my ability. " Shen Yan did not shy away from the problems in Yang Weiye's mind. If he could stay in the position and take out his real strength, Shen Yan would also support him.
"Little Yan, if your father knows that you have such ambitions, his soul will be comforted. Don't worry, even if I sacrifice my life, I will not let the Shen's go down. " Yang Weiye was truly surprised to hear Shen Yan say such words. It seemed that he must know Second Young Master again.
